As a guide we currently see 90% of patients within that window. We aim always to see the most urgent need patients first and small children and the elderly are often given priority during our triage process. Our patients are kept informed regularly during the wait time by both the call centre and the Driver/Chaperone.
Always call the call centre if your condition deteriorates and dial 000 if your condition becomes life threating. We ask that any dogs are restrained and a porch light switched on if available at your home. Our aim is to arrive at hour house or home as quickly as possible so one of our doctors can have you feeling better sooner.
The doctor will arrive with a chaperone or driver so he is able to concentrate on your treatment and administer any medication you may need to get you through the night or until a prescription can be filled. Medication is provided at no cost to the patient. A report of your treatment will be sent to your regular doctor/GP the very next business day.
